Variety is reporting that Disney is aiming to make a live action version of ‘Kiki’s delivery service’ to be directed by Jeff Stockwell. It’s unclear if the film will be a remake of the classic Miyazaki animation, or will be more closely related to the books by Eiko Kadano that they were based on.
It’s a move which makes financial sense for Disney, both Harry Potter and anime are popular at the moment. They obviously hope to cash in on both trends. What remains to be seen is if Disney can live up to the name.
